Waiting on Wednesday (#284): The Wicked King by Holly Black

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm featuring:

The Wicked King by Holly Black
Book Two of the Folk of the Air series
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 8, 2019

Summary (from Goodreads):

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

I loved The Cruel Prince! I think one or two people might be looking forward to The Wicked King... haha... January is so far away. D:


  1. Yep, this one will be on several WoW. ;) But, no surprise as to why.

  2. Nice!! Can't wait for this one either. Sadly already rejected for a review copy on this one, so it will be a mighty long wait until January, though I feel the wait will be even longer for all who have already read it for the third one! Guess there's some silver lighting there! Lol!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
